COL. JOS. MARTIN TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Augusta, Jany. 29th, 1786.

Sir:

In May 1783, I had the Honor to be appointed Superintendent of Indian Affairs in the Cherokee Nation by and for the State of North Carolina at an Established salary of two hundred and fifty Dollars per Year in part of which I have received One Year's Salary.

You will much oblige me by issuing Warrants for the Balance due me and deliver them to the Bearer, William Blount.

Sometime in October I had the Honor to forward on to your Excellency all the Intelligence that I could obtain, since when nothing worth communicating has occurred, except what you will be informed of by the Agent for the State of North Carolina.

I have the Honor to be, Your Excellency's,
Most obedient and Humble Servant,
JOS. MARTIN.
